tell you exactly what mitt romney is going to say in wednesday's presidential debate, and i'm going to tell you how you back home can rebut his claims. how do i know what he is going to say? because a talking point's memo from the campaign to romney's surrogates and allies it was leaked today. i know from experience that a memo coming like this just two days before a debate it is intended to prepare the surrogates and allies to parrot really the candidate to repeat and reinforce his position on every issue. so you are ready to hear it and it makes his ability to defend at the debate that much so that's what this memo is all about. wednesday's debate is going to focus on three of the most contentious issues of the campaign. the focus will be on the role of government, the economy and health care. mitt romney has a history of shall we sa waffling a little bit on these important issues we even have a collection of mitt's flip flops here inside the war room but this suggests where his position is actually going to be on wednesday night. first off, the role of government as a subject, and t

presidential race is a little more iffy then they want to save the other races. there was a statement that said that the romney campaign now wants to frame this election as a choice and not a referendum which is something totally different. it says this election is a choice between two very different visions of our nation's future . . . interesting shift of strategy, isn't it? >> i think it means it is going to be more aggressive instead of trying to run the ball up the middle. i think they are going to be throwing passes. if you are making at it comparison, you have to show what your policies are. >> but they have been quiet about this stuff -- >> that's right. and that's what i think they are going to do in the debate. >> jennifer: do you not think the shift to choice is a response to the fact that the election was becoming more of a referendum not on president obama but to mitt romney. yes. absolutely. so it does reflect their change in their strategy. the only thing is about the amount of money i don't think that will be the defining issue in this debate. >> jennifer: what do you think

also say that you don't think that the republican presidential candle dates from years past would have even come close saying what mitt romney said in that video behind closed doors about the 47%. what makes you say that? >> i just don't think that that degree of resentment and rage had percolated up to that level that it has in these last two or three years. you know, george w. bush, yes he favored the rich in his tax policies, there's no question about that, but he didn't drive a hatred of poor people. he didn't drive a narrative about, you know, working class and poor people being moochers. that narrative obviously started shortly after barack obama took office and it's been given vent bay lot of people, and, you know, i just don't think republicans before obama took office, i just don't think they would have spoken this way. they might very secretly in those private rooms. >> the new republican party beware of it, folks in november. thank you michael tomasky for joining me, one of the sharper political minds and writer in the daily beast. >> those who say republicans are targeting

from 7-eleven. customers can get their coffee in a blue cup or red cup. for the past three presidential elections they have predicted the winner. and today president obama is ahead by 16 points. should we trust 7-eleven karl? >> pardon me i'm parched governor. excuse me. [ laughter ] >> if you have tried the romney coffee, it tastes bitter it tastes stale, and it has so much creamer in it that it is almost entirely white. first of all they like tea better anyways. if i was rush limbaugh right now, and i was looking for the conspiracy theory de jour to start painting remember when mitt romney said i don't want one of these kookies they are from 7-eleven or something. but we have a lot of work to do. >> jennifer: all right. cheryl. >> spirit halloween is selling both obama and romney masks, and they report the number of people buying obama masks this cycle is even greater than in 2008. >> jennifer: who knows. it may even be a bigger turnout. the first presidential debate is wednesday, and it is prompting both campaigns to say very nice things to each other. and we'll tell you about the la

your vice presidential nominee on the issue. >> why did they send him? >> for romney to win a presidential election for a republican, you have to have close to a 20-point margin with some of these particular voters, particularly in these key swing states. every time the number drops, it makes it that much harder for romney to be competitive. >> you think romney still has a chance to turn this around? >> i thought this was going to be a very close election. >> everybody says so. >> if i'm looking at this like it was stock i'd be buying a lot on the futures of president obama right now. >> i agree with you chris. thanks for coming inside the war room. that's chris lehane. up next, mitt romney made a comment on 60 minutes last night that proves one of two things. even he doesn't understand how government functions or he's deliberately distorting the truth. i don't have to tell you where the smart money is going. you're in the war room that can only be health matters to all of us. that's why lysol has started a mission for health. with new mom programs, lysol healthy habits initia

governor romney is douglas brinkley. douglas is a presidential historian. rice university professor and author of the new book "cronkite." welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks, governor. thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. so is it just me or do you also think that tomorrow's debate is being pumped up more than any other debate at least in my memory? >> well, i think so because it seems like it has been a longer campaign right? the media now -- every day really every second, people are watching what obama and romney says. it is the dominant story. i think people are feeling this is one of those elections of a lifetime which vision for america to go to. so it is a lot of hype for this one and there is a feeling now with barack obama up in the polls, three points nationally but up in some -- almost all of the swing states he might be able to close the deal with the american people tomorrow night if he has a good performance. on the other hand, as governor chris christie said over the weekend, if mitt romney comes in and is able to hold his own or even get a few good j

crisis? >> well, look, we're in the middle of a presidential campaign and the foreign policy is something that's critical to to be discussed. it is going to be discussed by the white house. it's going to be discussed by governor romney. but my point is governor romney came out with a very strong no apologies reaction and it was the same reaction that hillary clinton had, the person that wasn't on the same page was president obama. but one thing i do want to say and i think we all have this close to our hearts right now is to extend condolences to ambassador stevens' family, sean smith, glen doherty and tyrone woods who died, brave american foreign service officers and former military folks who were doing our bidding in libya as americans. that's not a partisan issue. >> jennifer: absolutely. totally agree with you on that. totally agree with you on that. many of governor romney's foreign policy advisers including yourself worked for president george w. bush. do you think that if governor romney is elected president we're going to be seeing a similar kinds of policy as we saw in

romney has been debating a lot this year. just real quickly. >> i think it's very important. this is the highest influxion moment of any campaign, particularly a presidential campaign. and so he's pretty good on his feet but again every answer is a minute and a half. you have to be hone and sharp and get your few points across that will then be covered by the media and form the broader public's opinion of what happened. >> jennifer: exactly. so interesting. i'll be watching. great popcorn moment. that's democratic strategist jill alper. thanks for joining us, jill. up next, all of the recent budget cuts have the ranks of union workers and public employees cut as well. we're going to tell you why they may be down but they're certainly not out. and is there anything worse than a whiny billionaire? well maybe a whiny republican billionaire. we'll tell you what has sheldon adelson so cranky. you're watching "the war room" only on current tv. how are you ever going to solve the problem if you don't look at all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's

romney are dedicating countless hours preparing for them. i was just reminded by mark mckinnon he actually prepared sarah palin for her vice presidential debate. as many who watch the show know i was prepping joe biden as sarah palin for the vice presidential debate. you must have been in sedona. >> i was. >> jennifer: yeah. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: you did a good job on that. >> she beat expectations. that's what it is all about. >> jennifer: did you play joe biden? >> i did not. >> jennifer: you were in the background helping her. >> did i one early night. that was my obligation. >> jennifer: it is an interesting thing to prep for debates as he with all know because there's countless hours that go into it. there is a whole debate camp that goes into it including lots of questions you have to go over and especially trying to find the toughest question. the question that you had proposed as the fiscal cliff looms, your proposal to deal with budget deficit involves spending cuts and tax increases for the wealthy. mr. president, what will you cut? you're president obama. how do you
